How to View Android Contacts by Last Name

CompanionLink's Name Order Feature Lets Users Choose Format for Contact Names

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - January 8, 2010) - CompanionLink® Software introduces a feature that customizes the order in which contact names display on Android-based phones. With CompanionLink, contact names can be displayed by last name on Android phones.

"Mobile business users who depend on software like Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes, and ACT! need contacts on their phone to show just like they do on their PC," says Rushang Shah, Director of Marketing at CompanionLink Software, Inc. "CompanionLink's Name Order feature gives users full control of how their contact records appear on their Android devices."

Google and Android-based phones use a single field, called Name, which combines the first and last names of the contact record. Android phones sort names by the first character in the Name field -- usually the first name of the contact record. CompanionLink's Name Order feature allows users to sort contacts on Android-based phones in "last name, first name" format.

CompanionLink allows users to synchronize their PC data to Android phones in two ways:

--  Wireless sync using Google contacts and calendar
--  Wired sync using USB cable

CompanionLink's desktop solutions are available for a one-time license fee starting at $39.95. More information and a 14-day evaluation version of the software can be found at
